Global Launch

UW Global Launch in London is a year-long academic and experiential opportunity designed for first-year UW students to prepare them for success as global citizens in today’s interconnected world. The selected cohort, led by a UW professor, will engage in classroom learning, guest lecturers, guided visits around London and overnight excursions. While exploring British culture, students will complete core credit requirements and serve the community in which they will live through an international service learning component.

Participants on this program will receive the Chris & Suzy (Oldorf) DeWolf Family Global Launch Scholarship. Awards are: Wisconsin Resident: $20,000; Minnesota Resident: $15,000; Non-resident: $10,000. This scholarship aims to ensure that the cost of study abroad for the first-year is comparable to the on-campus overall cost of attendance.
